Join renowned speaker Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross for sensate

experiences that allow you to see and know  your body
differently, and allow your body-mind to be an entryway to greater self-awareness.  Experiences will include exploring nature, mindful food preparation and eating through the macrobiotic dietary principles as taught by macrobiotic expert Phiya Kushi, and energetic practices with shamanism and creativity, guided by visionary artist Iva Peele.The body is the reservoir of all the wisdom you need to live your life.

This workshop will reconnect you with this source of wisdom and strength that, when in harmony with the mind, serves as a force for healing of body, mind and spirit on the deepest level. When you “come home to your body” you find an ally, not an adversary.  With your body as your ally, you will learn to transcend body limitations, physical illness and body size or shape issues.  Your alliance with your body will transform your life.
